Two new Paladin features provide real-time remote stock on hand (SOH) information for your Ace Hardware Retail Support Center (RSC).
Get real-time RSC stock on hand for any inventory item
The first feature uses the existing Stock Check or Transfer (multi-store) feature on the bottom ribbon in the Inventory and PO modules. Open an inventory item or highlight an item on a PO and click Stock Check or Transfer (multi-store) or press F7 to see the real-time remote stock on hand at your RSC.
Note: Only the SOH column is filled in for Ace Hardware RSCs.
Sort purchase order by RSC availability
The second feature sorts items on a purchase order into these categories based on RSC availability:
- SUPPLIER OUT OF STOCK: Shows PO items that are not in stock at the RSC.
- PARTIAL STOCK AVAILABLE: Shows PO items that are in stock at the RSC, but not enough to cover your current order quantity.
- STOCK AVAILABLE: Shows PO items that are in stock at the RSC for your order quantity.
To sort a PO by RSC availability, in the PO module, click Recall PO (or press F6), highlight the PO, and then select the Supplier Stock Check checkbox before you click Recall (or press F12).
When the PO opens, the order items will be sorted into the three categories just mentioned.
To view the RSC stock on hand for any PO line item, highlight the item and then click Stock Check or Transfer (multi-store) or press F7.
Tip If your PO is lengthy, click the binoculars icon and search for stock to find the categories.
